Nervous - New EAP job

Unread post by david++ » 13 Sep 2014, 09:48

I'm desperate for help, advice and/or encouragement! I am going to be starting a position as an EAP Tutor soon. However, I don't know how I'm going to do it - I have no experience in EAP, only ESL/EFL. I am surprised I was offered the job and I know that my collegues will be a lot more experienced that me. Could anyone offer any links, reading or advice I could use before I start? I would also love to hear your experiences of beginning to teach EAP.

Not to worry, you must want the job if you accepted it. Congratulations! They want you for the position since they saw something in you that made them choose you for the position.
